|The New Absolute Yachts 50 Flybridge|
Absolute Yachts are delighted to announce the launch of the new "Absolute 50 FLY". This latest yacht in the Absolute range will have all of the innovative features, ingenious solutions and design nuances that are trademarks of the experience of Absolute.
The accommodation features a three guest cabin layout with all beds a full two metres in length. The full beam master cabin features a king-size bed for the owner and for there is a double VIP cabin in the bow with two single beds in the third cabin. The master cabin features a vanity console and a walk-in wardrobe while the VIP cabin is lit by wide state of the art windows which are rarely seen on boats in the 50 foot range.
The master cabin is ensuite while the second head has private access from the VIP cabin as well as from the main corridor which features a washing machine. Both have large separate shower compartments. Absolute have taken great care with the design of the cabins so that all beds are a regular rectangle shape with good access and all the mattresses have a memory foam layer, over the standard thickness. Cabin headroom is in the range of 190 to 215 cm.
There is also a crew cabin with independent access directly from the aft platform. This cabin has a toilet, sink and private shower, a mirror window to allow plenty of natural light and privacy, an opening porthole and a wardrobe. The finish is the same as that of the other cabins so it is essentially a fourth guest cabin. This space can also be set up as a storage compartment for diving equipment and water sports.
The galley is aft and is separated from the cockpit by a three leaved glass door. Space in the galley is optimised by an angled cook top and oven and there is also a dishwasher. The domestic dimension fridge has an independent freezer and there is a wine cooler under the lower helm seat. The raised saloon can be separated from the galley thanks to an electrical sliding glass panel. The main sofa faces the 49" TV, installed in a cabinet with TV lift mechanism behind the second sofa. You can choose between dining in the saloon, cockpit or flybridge where the wet bar includes sink, BBQ grill, icemaker and fridge.
The stern sofa can become a sun bed and the cockpit also has an electrically operated sunshade and privacy screen. A BBQ grill with sink and night lighting can also be added to the aft platform giving the yacht three separate cooking areas. The hydraulic hi-lo platform has a 450 kg capacity for use as a tender lift. Wide side decks lead to the bow where there is a separate sofa and three reclining sun beds. With the area on the flybridge this gives the boat three separate sunbathing areas. In addition to the main sofa with dining table, the flybridge also offers a forward facing side sofa. The flybridge has the option of a folding bimini or fibreglass hardtop with opening sunroof.
The Absolute 50 FLY is a stunning all new design that shares features of all boats in the Absolute range. Maximization and optimization of the interior and exterior spaces which provide enhanced usability. The finest Canaletto walnut for the furniture, oak for the floors and solid teak for the deck. Three separate cooking and dining areas and three sunbathing areas. A fourth aft cabin with a finish level as good as the one in the lower deck cabins. The IPS drive system which provides enhanced performance, fuel consumption, silent movement and manoeuvrability and the absence of vibration.
